From what he told us, he low sided as the result of either too much front or back brake, but he is not 100% sure. Once you go down, things happen pretty fast!

No word yet on outcome of the surgery...

Re: Lowside today

May post-surgery reveal complete success by Dr. Sawbones. Never heard of the finger tip bruises, but it make sense.

Heal up and ride again.

Re: Lowside today

Kelly text earlier saying it was a bad break & difficult surgery. Doc had extra work to get smaller pieces to net to bone. (I'm not sure what that means). He's put together with plates & screws.

I pray that he is not in too much pain & takes it easy. I'm not sure how long his hospital stay will be.

Lowside today

Hello from Herman Memorial. Still here. Right now the "plan" is to be discharged sometime tomorrow after 3pm. We'll see.

Here's picture of the bike after Tim and Tony and host of others got it off the road.


Here's what's left of my jacket after the EMTs cut it off.



I don't have a good helmet picture but it is an HJC Sy-Max 3. The chin bar once again stayed locked and in place.

Re: Lowside today

I got to spend a bit of time with Jeff and his wife Kelly at the hospital this afternoon. He's in great spirits, looks great, and doing much better.

Re: Lowside today

I'm home. Time to start getting better. Crashing Sucks. I'm the new poster boy for ATGATT.
Progressive guy was here this afternoon. My (new) gear is totaled out as the paramedics cut most of it off. The progressive guy told Lee the bike may be totaled out this time. Appearently there is frame damage where the crash bar attaches. I haven't gone out to the garage to look at it. Tomorrow. I'm waiting for the good drugs to kick in. Supper and I get to use my lazy boy again. I'll try to post up some pictures if I can.
Thanks to everyone who sent along all the good thoughts and prayers. And big THANK YOU to my four lunch run riders for helping me and my family Sunday. That's what TWT folks do.

Re: Lowside today

Glad to see you are making progress and being at home is probably a much better feeling than at the hospital.

Re: Lowside today

4-6 weeks to let the surgery set with no movement of the shoulder joint. Then I can start rehab maybe. The doctor said the bone between the ball of the humerus and the long part of the humerus was just about toast. I'm a candidate for a rebuilt shoulder. Crashing Sucks ATGATT

I bet thinking of what motorcycle to get next will help with your recovery. Heal up quick and hope next years riding goes better for you.

Re: Lowside today

February or March I'm thinking. Rehabilitation will take a long time. Now, if a smoking deal were to come along......

Re: Lowside today

In your pain reliever induced state Monday evening, did you tell me your left collar bone was broken? Or is it just the right arm that is broken?

That smoking deal JUST came along and I think it is still available... even has ABS
